The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 24.034 billion Vyos enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 19%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the soul.

Vyolynce is ranked 2nd in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 25,283rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -3 on the Hayek Index.
